How fans rated Amrabat's Chelsea display

Manchester United fans from all over the world have been hailing Sofyan Amrabat after his ‘best performance’ so far in a Reds shirt.

The Morocco international covered virtually every blade of grass during Wednesday’s spirited and energetic 2-1 victory over Chelsea.

He constantly harried and harassed the Blues’ much-vaunted midfield pair of Moises Caicedo and Enzo Fernandez, helping United maintain a constant flow of pressure.

His control in midfield allowed us to burst forward with regularity, as we registered 28 shots on goal and a season-high xG (expected goals) number of 4.07.

After the game, loanee Sofyan said he was starting to find his feet at his new club after his lack of a pre-season and supporters certainly felt that our no.4 was deserving of acclamation for a solid showing, in his ninth United start…
